Wheel I never. World-famous stunt cyclist Danny MacAskill is set to take part in an event which will see the Grassmarket transformed into a gruelling bike track.

The 27-year-old athlete – who became a household name after a video of him performing mountain bike tricks across the Capital went viral – has confirmed he will attend a race night being billed as the “ultimate battle of the bikes”.

The Red Bull Hill Chasers event will see 500 amateur bike enthusiasts battle through a series of tough multi-discipline heats to line up against him and a number of other cycling professionals.
